Arsenal is paying for two things. One is a lack of experience and another bad team spirit. Arsene Wenger has been saying that these youngsters are ready to win the league, but then their lack of experience is exposed now. I think these youngsters could win something provided they have astute leadership. But in William Gallas, I do not think they have a great leader. Gallas is a good player but not a good leader. I think that has led to a bad team spirit and that has affected the team badly. Let's hope Fabregas can turn it around though he is all of 22 years old!! Cheers! Ram

First thing they need to do is to get a quality goalkeeper.i don't know how long Wenger is going to play with Almunia. Next they have to is to get someone in central defense that they can depend upon. thirdly they need to work on set pieces. Personally i feel that the attack and midfield are in a good state. its the defense they need to look at..

you are right venkimi. if you had responded before i would have made your response as the best response. they lack aerial abilities and hence they need players who are good in the air. i dont think almunia is at fault. he is good. the defence needs to improve alot... happy mylotting!!!!!!!!!!

It's sad to know that arsenal has lost 3 goals to manchester city, which is quite a disappointing result. Sometimes they can play really well. Perhaps they need to be more consistent, also learn how to play with the weak teams. They always lost to the weaker teams, but they played with against the big teams.
